Sophion Bioscience QPatch®

Patch clamping

QPatch is a fully automated patch clamp system and is used on almost any ion channel target.

Partnering with Tecan allows us to deliver the complete service package, not just a high quality instrument.

Rasmus Bjørn Jacobsen, Head of the Applications Development Group at Sophion Bioscience


Patch clamping remains the gold standard assay for investigating ion channels, but the manual technique requires patience and extensive training, and has a low throughput.

Danish company Sophion Bioscience collaborated with Tecan to develop the QPatch®, a fully automated patch clamping system that combines the accuracy of manual techniques with high throughput, enabling up to 48 recordings in 30 minutes.
